    Its warm enough here now at night that we are no longer needing the heat lamp at night for them. They have food and water in their coop at night as well. Should we put a low watt bulb in their so they can make their way to the water-er at least? Thanks

    Not a bad idea. Put it directly over the water.

    Mine find the water at night without a problem. Personally, I'd say just save on the electricity.
